Welcome to our K-2 Children's Ministry!
Discovery Land Staff is eager to work with your family to give your children a Biblical worldview so they will be able to stand firm for Jesus. We are committed to provide safe, quality Biblical education, and kid-sized fun so that the Bible will come to life for your child!
|Sunday Mornings||Sundays||8:00, 9:30, or 11:00 a.m. during services|
Come visit us on Sunday! Simply stop by our Family Registration Desk located in the Hub. One of our greeters will assist you with registration and walk you through your first visit.
On Sundays we focus on “Bringing the Bible to Life.” We accomplish this by walking through the entire Bible every three years. Our morning starts under the Treehouse 10 minutes before start of the worship service, beginning with a review game and worship. Casual attire and comfortable shoes are recommended. Children in Kindergarten and older are encouraged to bring an NIV Bible .
Visitors are always welcome! Registration takes place when you arrive. Stop at the DL Welcome Desk to begin your student’s first day in Discovery Land. Parents may check in students beginning 15 minutes before each service. There is no cost associated with Sunday programming.
Sparks Club is an exciting experience for K-2nd grade kids who want to grow spiritually while having fun! Sparks is packed full of engaging activities including worship, life application of the Bible lessons taught the previous Sunday, exciting games, handbook activities, and one-on-one time with leaders who coach Sparkies as they memorize, recite verses, and understand God's Word.
Registration is encouraged, however, students in Kindergarten through 6th grade may visit anytime to see the ministry in action. Registration opens each July and is open through the year. Please watch for information on Facebook or Parent Link. Please note that there is a fee associated with our Tuesday night Awana programming.

Special Needs Ministry
Discovery Land values and loves every child that attends, which is why we have designed our One2One Ministry that focuses on children with special needs. Our goal is to create a successful, safe, fun, and educational experience in DL for all children and to meet their individuals needs.
For more information, please contact our One2One Ministry Coordinator.
Can I stay with my child?
We welcome you to stay with your child to observe. Simply stop at the DL Desk and they will be happy to assist you. Because we value your children’s safety, we strictly monitor who is in the Discovery Land facility during our learning sessions. A driver's license will be required to acquire a parent lanyard.
Do I have to be a member to bring my kids to Discovery Land?
No, you don’t have to be a member. Everyone is welcome in Discovery Land!
How old does my child have to be to come to Discovery Land?
Discovery Land offers Sunday programs for children 6 weeks through 6th grade. Our Tuesday night Awana programming is for children 2 years before 5 year old kindergarten through 6th grade. To learn more about our youth programming for students 7th grade and older, please visit our Student Ministries page.
How will you notify me if my child needs me?
All children and parents preschool age and under will receive wristbands with matching numbers during our Sunday and Tuesday programming. When parents are needed on Sundays, their specific wristband number appears on the screens in the Worship Center. Parents should go to the DL Desk to connect with their child if their number is put up.
Is there a fee for Discovery Land?
Our Sunday program is free of charge.
Our Tuesday evening Awana program has a cost associated with registration, which covers books, fees, uniforms, etc. The costs are listed on the registration.
What do you do for safety?
Some procedures we have put in place are:
- Children preschool and under and their parents receive wristbands with matching numbers. When children are picked up, the wristbands are removed by an adult leader after confirming the numbers match. Please note the parent with the matching wristband is the only one allowed to pick up their child.
- Students K-5th grade must be picked in their classroom by an adult immediately following the service. To ensure your child’s safety, older siblings are NOT allowed to pick up students.
- For your children’s protection, screenings and background checks are run on all Discovery Land staff and volunteers.
- The doors to Discovery Land are locked ten minutes after service begins so classes may move around in a secure environment. They are unlocked to allow parents in for pick up after all classes are back in their classrooms.
